La Dolce Vita: luxury yoga holiday with gourmet food and spa with Jonelle Lewis.


Come and join Jonelle in Italy where we will connect to the sweetness of life and slow down. Daily yoga in the forest-view shala plus plenty of time to lounge by the pool, pamper in the gorgeous spa, savour the local culture, and enjoy the finest Italian food on this 5-star yoga retreat in the most outstanding natural setting.

Simply “One of the greatest yoga holidays on the planet” The Telegraph

The love and vitality of Jonelle's brilliant teaching together with the world-class facilities, incredible natural beauty, and all-round sumptuousness of this retreat cannot fail to inspire, invigorate and revive you - mind, body and soul. 

Classes are suitable for all levels and will focus on yoga asana (postures) but will also include dhyana (meditation), pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (hand gestures and other 'energy containers') and mantra (chanting), all practised with a view to waking up your prana (life-force).

The morning practices will be hatha/classical & mandala vinyasa; full of things that will nourish and recharge the body as well as strengthen. In the evenings we will completely slow down with Yin/Restorative & Nidra to surrender into sweet relaxation. 

There will be two yoga classes each day except for the 2nd when there will be an afternoon off for those who want to explore further afield - or just enjoy a couple of extra hours in the on-site spa! The first yoga session will be on the morning of the 31st August and the last on the evening of the 4th.

Complete beginners through to advanced yogis and even non-yoga partners will love this Italian retreat.
